I just built a new computer. All is running great. However, my memory doesn't seem to be running optimally. I have enabled the XMP profile in the bios and it says it's running at 2666MHz which is the advertised clock speed. However, when i run the benchmark it states that is performing way worse than expected.

It's corsair vengeance 2666 LPX
